A markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable.
XML, or eXtensible Markup Language, is a markup language that encodes documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable. It's widely used in cloud computing for data interchange, configuration files, and in web services.
XML works by using tags to define elements and structure in a document. These elements can then be parsed and manipulated by an XML processor.
A cloud service provider, CloudServe, uses XML to exchange data between their cloud services and their customers' applications. The data is encoded in XML format, which can be easily parsed and processed by the applications, regardless of the platform or programming language they're using.
